12 Parks near Pilesgrove, New Jersey
Jul 2015 - $45.00
This campground has a nice wooded section (the 400's) We were there midweek in July,not crowded. There is a nice little pond,no pool. However they do not stay in office/store past 3pm. For no good reason they kept the Game room locked up except for weekend. Worst part was the small bathroom with single shower stall,smaller than a phone booth. The faucet is set, NO control of temperature! - Bill Fin

The park is wooded which is nice but the roads are poorly maintained. We camped in site 428 near a shower. Unfortunately, the only a single shower for men an women was open, it was not clean, the hot water went from cold to hot to cold. This shower served about 45 sites. Other showers and baths were locked. When we complained the next morning, they were unreceptive and acted as if we should be grateful we were able to get a shower. Clearly they did not have customer service in mind. Additionally, the bathrooms had no towels, dryers, or soap dispensers. Many of the sites are permanent and rundown. Recommend skipping this campground if you have other options. - EUSJNM

I did not expect much when we were able to make a holiday reservation 1 1/2 week prior. This campground could be a nice place if the owners made needed improvements. The entrance tells the story. They have too many old seasonals with decks and outbuildings in disrepair. We stayed In the 400's section which was nice (no seasonals). The water supply was little more than a trickle. The site was wooded and large. The bathroom which was a newer bathroom was very dirty There was no bench or a place to hang clothes. Several toilets were not working. The camp did not have pump out service. We chose this place because it was close, and it was the first time for a first time RV owner trying to camp on a holiday. I only wish the owners could see this place with the eyes of a camper. This place could be nice, but a bulldozer and dumpsters are needed. - shakieg

First time staying at this Yogi Bear Campground. Highly recommend site #54 as it is huge! Site was level, hooks up were easy to reach with basic lengths and the gravel was nice as most other sites were dirt. Verizon signal was ok, didn't use park wifi, site had lots of foliage cover so unable to use satellite park cable had limited options. As others have stated the campground road are dirt and with the dry weather this meant all of dust and dirt any time traffic went by. - SJEAGLES609

We stayed here travelling north from Virginia to Maine. RV parks are scarce along the route, especially after reading some of the reviews here. So we didn't mind a 20 minute detour off of the interstate to find a nice park. We were not disappointed. This is a resort park, with lots of activities and facilities, and is reflected in the price. We were looking for something private and quiet for our night, and the staff readily accommodated us by placing us in a site far from the pools and playgrounds. The site was large and quiet. The seasonal units were all well taken care of and neat. The only detractions were no WiFi, and the water connection was at the front of the site, so I had to be careful to position my unit but still needed 50' of water hose forward and 20' of sewer hose back. Word of warning: the rural drive to the park is not well signed and the county won't let the park put any up. The GPS was invaluable. We would return. - bigdipper

We selected this park based on one thing, it was close to Cowtown and we wanted to go to the Rodeo. We are so happy with this park that we are already looking forward to next year so we can go again. The sites are Large and for the most part seem pretty level. We did not have a concrete pad or patio at our sites, but so what? We had two adjacent sites for the weekend and could easily have parked two additional rigs in the sites with us! We had decent water pressure, Cable was excellent. The store had the basics as well as a few special items. There is a really nice water park/wet park here for the kids. The pool seemed very nice although we didn't use it, the pool hours are nice, 10am til 8pm. The Yogi Bear parks do one thing that I find especially nice, At 9am Yogi, Boo-Boo or Cindy along with a "Ranger" comes out an raises the Flag and leads the assembled campers in the Pledge. At 6pm they lower the flag after again leading the campers present in the Pledge. In the morning two of the young campers are selected to help raise the flag. In the evening two more are picked to help lower the flag and then they properly fold the flag. There was this week a DJ and a contest to win prizes by naming songs and artists. There were other activities as well. We didn't take part in most as we were there for the Rodeo and the Cowtown Flea Market. This is a great place to stay if you are in the area. - blues traveler

This campground looks great. There are lots of trees, but also sunny sites. We watched cows nursing their babies in the pasture, and you can buy farm-fresh eggs at the campground store. So why the low rating?
(1) The electricity fluctuated. It spikes up and down. First you'll have 120 volts. A few hours later it'll drop to less than 110. (2) The water pressure also fluctuates. You'll have good pressure, then in the middle of your shower it slows down. (3) Ants, lots of them, invading our RV. This problem probably could have been alleviated somewhat if they cut the grass more often. It was over my ankles. (4) The trash cans were overflowing. Apparently, it is picked up on Fridays. Which means that the trash generated by the many weekenders sits here for a full week. - mrpeepers

This campground was clean and quiet, and the campsites were fairly level. My only complaint was that, contrary to what I was told, you could not get a view of satellite from the 50 amp sites. I then moved to a 30 amp site and was given a refund for the price difference with no problem. I then had to deal with acorns dropping on my motorhome and car. I could have move again but decided to stay in that site. I would stay hear again but I would chose a 30 amp site with no overhead trees. - TomG100

We read a number of reviews and decided we'd chance this CG. We are very happy we did! This is a very nice quiet CG. We took a walk around Sunday morning and all we heard was the wind in the trees, a couple bull frogs by the ponds and the chirping of birds. No traffic, no trains!
The roads inside are gravel. The sites are mostly all grass, some are gravel, most all are pretty level and good sized. The swimming lake is not the place it may once have been, but the new pool has made that a moot point. The pool is a relatively new addition, just a couple years old. Electric was good, water pressure was good, there is no cable. In truth we did not miss cable, we had a handful of air channels but didn't bother with TV. WiFi is spotty as was Sprint phone. There are a couple sites that will allow two units to face each other, nice if you are traveling with another family or a friend. I will definitely return here. - blues traveler

Smaller campground. Lots of year rounds sites. Access to location was good.
Easy access to Phily by train. Lots are mostly shady. Sites are dirt and feature a picnic table and patio. Power and sewer connections all worked fine. - G and L
Oct 2016 - $45.00
Our 2nd time staying there. Lots of 'permanent' residents but for those of us coming in for a short term stay, the sites were easy to access and level. The CG is GREAT when traveling either north or south on I-295 through the Philly area. Reservations were easy to make. No real ambiance but that was OK based on we were only there for 3 nights and just slept in the camper. - FordTruck

We stayed in an overflow site because the park was full. Overflow site was very good level gravel site with water and 50 amp. Satellite worked good and wifi was OK. Although it was not real convenient to the highway it was not that far away. We would stay here again. - RayN

On the plus side, there were a number of nice hiking trails (if at times poorly marked and a bit confusing), certain of the campsites offer spaciousness and privacy, regular patrols by New Jersey State Park police offered the appearance of security, and the park is welcoming to pets. These attributes were outweighed, however, by some distinctively negative features. The campground (and swimming area) restroom and shower facilities were very outdated (no soap, inoperative faucets and toilets, mirrors that were unusable due to the accumulation of rust at levels that made visibility near-zero) and invariably filthy (clogged toilets, used toilet paper and urine on the floors, feces-laden toilet seats, trash in abundance). The permissible swimming area is rather tiny and shallow, with swimming being limited largely to small children. And planned activities for campers (such as ranger naturalist talks) are few or nonexistent. With its current budgetary woes, the State of New Jersey appears to have found some convenient targets for financial cuts, and this campground appears to represent one of them. - TentingTimesTwo

This is a state park located in South Jersey. Living not too far from here, I decided to take a short, one night trip. When trying to reserve online through the Reserve America site, I was told there was a two night minimum. However I did call, and the office personal informed me to just come over on the day I would like to check in. Doing so, you will pay a walk- in fee. So $25.00 a night, still, not bad at all. After getting all the info, you will have to drive to the other side of the park to get your site. I had site 27, and informed them I have a 22 foot RV. I just about made it down the road to this particular site, but, being full that night, its was pretty much all that was available. Though, my RV did some tree and shrub trimming. The site was fairly large in width, it wasn't very deep. With the tight road, back in was a struggle, and, the site was very un-level. But, I had plenty of room to put the awning out. Very quite, and away from other sites. I just wish I did have another site;however, as I saw ones open that would be better access for me. I will however camp here again. State park- no hookups! - Chieftain1986

We had stayed here about 10 years ago and when we had to visit Delaware again, we again found that this is the ONLY place to park an RV in Northern Delaware. The price is extremely high because there is no other place to go. Very difficult to get into the park as highway 40 and the Dupont Highway split right in front of the building and there are large traffic walls. We had to go North on the highway, do a huge U-turn in driving rain and rush hour traffic before we could reach the entrance. Also, the name on the sign is different. It's supposed to be Delaware Motel and RV Park but the sign says "Delaware Autocourt-motel and trailer park" Also it says "build to suit" indicating to me that the place is for sale as well. I had trouble calling them for reservations but finally got through. We had a large dumpster next to space one, where they put us but told us "it had just been emptied." One of the big surprises was "the siren". I had read about this in reviews of nearby motels. It seems that the fire department is two doors up and whenever they get a call, even at 12:30 a.m, this enormous civil defense siren starts wailing. I thought it was for a nuclear attack the first time I heard it. It is so loud, its beyond belief, and hard to comprehend that they still do this activity in New Castle, Delaware.
The site we were at had reliable 50 amp service, water, and sewer, and I would have to say, even with the abandoned semi trailers scattered about, the people staying there were very nice to us, didn't bother us, and the maintenance fellow checked us in during a huge rainstorm, and waited out by the site to help us hook up, and he was sopping wet, but took it all in stride. It's just too bad somebody doesn't spend the money to whip the place in shape. They have a nice large area for the RV's, but it seems that there are mostly monthly or semi-permanent residents. There is a motel to the East of the RV park which you drive past to get into the spaces. - elduque

This place was way over priced for what it offered , but it was about the only thing available along our route - there aren't many campgrounds in Delaware. It's along a very noisy road, and the fire department right next door adds to the chaos several times a day. As previously mentioned, this is a place for an overnight stop only. There is a lot of junk sitting around from the hotel, and some rather unsavory-looking folks walked through the park while we were there. Nothing more than a gravel lot behind a motel, but the full hookups worked well with strong 50-amp power and water. We don't plan to return. - LowesTravels

Good place for and overnight stay. When verifying directions with MapQuest use address 259 S. Dupont. And in the Woodalls book it says 50 Ft. where US 40 and US 13 divide, it is really right at the actually divide. There is a Walmart just down the road on the right, you could walk there. But when leaving if you are headed east and want to get on I295, just go down to the WalMart, pull into the parking lot, go out toward Wilton (the street that runs in front of WalMart) turn left onto Wilton, go to the light, cross over US 40/US30, you'll be turning left on to US 40E this will take you back up to I295. - Travelin Jenkins

This is a good place to overnight. There are no utilities. Probably the worst part was we were parked on the north end and a train is right behind the trees there. Next time we will park as far south as we can. We felt very safe as there was security driving around all the time. We visited the casino and was surprised to find it was non-smoking....YEAH!! - jacknpeg

We were looking for a place near Wilmington but couldn't find one. So, we decided to "boondock" at the race track. It was very convenient and the weather cooperated and was cool. They don't mind if you camp in their parking lot, but want you to use the back parking spaces. There were quite a few truckers who overnighted too. I had to put a price, but there is no charge. - har-fl

This is an old truck depot with an attached parking lot. RVs back up to the old loading bays. It sounds unappealing, but it's actually pretty nice. The sites are flat, paved, and easy to back in. Power and water are convieniently located. No trees so satellite works very well. No sewer but dump station nearby. Your neighbor might be 3 feet slide out to slide out if the place is busy. The area is fenced with a security gate and 24x7 shuttle drivers. The parking lot is an overflow lot for the U of P Hospital. Around 6:30am cars start showing up and you will hear some doors slamming and horn honking when the cars lock. A train yard is close by and you will hear trains too. But, a free shuttle to the hospital and a $2.25 bus (#42) gets you to all the downtown sites. Being in Philly as opposed to a long drive outside the city is great! Staff are super friendly and helpful. Price is a little high but when the location is considered it's fair. Keep in mind tow vehicle is an extra charge. - Bryanmsi

If I were touring downtown PHL, I would stay here again!
Good service, very unique. Shuttle to U of P Hosp complex. Take the 42 bus to Historic area, $2.25 per ride.
Only negatives were traffic noises from nearby train and highway system. This is a former truck transfer warehouse, thus the location. Felt very secure with fencing and shuttle drivers on duty 24/7.
Good job! - Sir_Charles395
Sep 2016 - $77.00
Basically this is a parking lot. The location is good (particularly good if you are wanting to be near the hospital as they provide a free shuttle). It is noisy with trains nearby and a highway also. No place but tarmac to walk a dog so not pet friendly. It is also quite expensive. On the good side, the people we dealt with were very friendly and helpful and it was easy to get downtown using the shuttle and a bus. - rolltide19

This was our first time staying at Hospitality Creek and were not very impressed! If I was charged $45-50 a night I would have no complaints; however when they charge $100 a night and have a 3 night minimum I expect a very nice campground. That is not the case at all. Unfortunately the campground is littered with numerous run down seasonal sites. Water park and pool were ok, nothing spectacular. Property has quite the laundry list of rules, however I saw no one enforcing them. Site was very un-level. If we were to come back it would only be to stay in one of the lakefront sites. - SJEAGLES609

Staff was super friendly and eager to accommodate our last minute, same day reservation. Peak season pricing is a little steep. We camped during their "off season", which grabbed us a 40% discount off of their general prices-well worth the money. Site had full hook ups. Bathrooms and showers were well maintained, clean, with endless hot water. Lots of seasonals, but well kept and quiet. The lake is gorgeous. The pools were closed during our stay, but looked fantastic (especially loved the splash pool for small children, it looked super fun!!) We would definitely stay again for the off season price. - Brownsonthemove

Many people think this is pricey, but Hospitality Creek by far is our favorite campground. The owners and very friendly, the park is maintained and cared for, with spotless bathrooms and showers. A lot of seasonals, but all are friendly. Beautiful lake and property, with all everything and more. You truly get what you pay for. Open April-October. Large Spacious, and private sites. I should also mention that there are several rules, and they do enforce them, yet, there's never any problems in this park. We go here just about once a month during the season. - Chieftain1986
Nov 2016 - $30.00
First time staying here, and certainly not the last. We stayed for one night on Thanksgiving weekend and were amazed how many other people were camping here. It was full! When you think State Park, you think of very basic camping. For the price, it's incredible. Full hookups, paved sites (recently renovated). Very modern, and easy to navigate. Feels like an RV resort! Camp Hosts on sites, small store, and the property is beautiful. Only downfall was no firewood available for sale on site. We can't wait to go back! So much to do and see here. - Chieftain1986

Upgraded state park facility in Bear, DE. Park is slightly confusing to get to. Be sure to enter the campground address, not main entrance to state park. Site was barely long enough for our 42' fifthwheel and dually truck. Site sloped "front to back", (had nose up so high I was able to walk under it without stooping!). However, back of trailer was only about 2 feet off the ground. New hookups (w/e/s) were mid-coach and easily accessible. Walking distance to the pond for fishing (need a license).
To enter campground, from Rt. 896, take Red Lion Road (NOT Howell School Road). Follow Red Lion Road to entrance of campground. Beware there are low hanging branches at the entrance. Know your site number, as the whole 3 days we were there, we never saw anyone at the main gate house. - usamacdonald2

The campground was just redone, full hook up sites (paved), and a new bathhouse. We love this campground, started camping here in a tent, now we are in a trailer. Plenty of space. - bcoakley
